We work hard from the very first moment because that gets our clients the best results. -Nicole Denmon, Founding Partner

It comes down to a simple rule:

If a business invites you to their shop to sell you goods or services, it needs to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Stores Have A Legal Responsibility To Protect You From Slip And Fall Injuries

Specifically, Florida law requires a business or property owner to:

Keep his or her premises in a reasonably safe condition,

Fix dangerous conditions on the property that the business knew about or should have known about, and

Warn customers/visitors about dangerous conditions.

If a business owner or a property owner does not fulfill these requirements, then that person acted negligently and you may have a personal injury case.

Initial Steps Our Bradenton Slip And Fall Injury Lawyers Take In Every Case

The Process Makes The Difference

Remember, a slip and fall happen at a building the defendant controls. A wily corporation can remedy the problem or otherwise destroy evidence, making a personal injury case that much more difficult to prove. Therefore, the name of the game in slip and fall injury cases is to move fast.

A slip and fall attorney is a type of personal injury attorney who specifically knows how to take on a business like a restaurant or a grocery store.

In every case, we do the following:

  1. Secure pictures or videos of the scene of the accident.
  2. Seek witness statements, either from workers at the store or third-party witnesses at the scene.
  3. Send spoliation letters to the store or business demanding that they not destroy any evidence.
  4. Seek insurance policy premiums from the business.
  5. Hire accident reconstructionists and safety experts as needed to protect your claim.
  6. Ensure that you get the best possible medical treatment.
  7. Work with your medical treatment providers from the beginning to ensure a coordinated plan of legal attack that also gets your medical needs met.

Do I Have A Case If The Business Claims I Am At Fault?

What if the business owner claims that you contributed to your own injuries?

Florida is a comparative fault state. That means if you are partially responsible for your own

injuries, then your economic claim is reduced proportionally according to your own fault. However, you still have a case. The value of your case is simply reduced to account for your share of the blame.

For example, assume that your slip and fall injury case results in a $500,000 settlement claim award for you. But the evidence proves you were 20% at fault in the accident. In this case, the award for the settlement is simply reduced by the amount that you were at fault — or 20% of $500,000, which reduces the net settlement claim in your slip and fall case to $400,000.

This past Tuesday, I got into a car accident that was frankly, quite scary. The experience left me disoriented, shaken, and overwhelmed with what "next steps" needed to be taken. Thanks to Nicole Pearlman, and the whole Denmon & Pearlman team, I didn't have to worry about those next steps. They quickly took over and set me up with medical appointments, a rental car, car inspection.... leaving me the ability to focus on spending those initial hours processing the accident and later, days spent on healing physically and emotionally. In a world where billions of people reside and yet we still often feel alone, that was never the case during this chaotic week. Never did I once feel alone in this whole process and I am incredibly thankful for their kindness to my nephew and I and their expertise in these matters. Denmon & Pearlman, especially Nicole Pearlman, WILL be there for you during life's most challenging experiences.

I had to resolve an issue with real estate created by my divorce lawyer’s mistake. We interviewed 4 other attorneys who were non commital about what they could do, a couple said I should pay off my ex to resolve.Paul Knudsen in the New Port Richey office looked at the case and felt we had a valid case and was confident he could help. He did just that ! Resolved the situation AND got half of my legal fees from my ex. He’s very smart and well respected in the courts. Definitely has our highest recommendation!!

Nicole Denmon handled my criminal defense case and her tenacity at getting the desired result exceeded far beyond what I ever thought to hope for. Even after I had given up, Nicole persisted in negotiating my case until she was able to get the ideal outcome for me. I have never had an attorney fight for me the way that Nicole did, and weeks later I am still amazed at the perseverance and level of dedication shown by Nicole and her supporting staff. Thank you Nicole!
